25th anniversary of anti-AIDS drugs
Date:3/3/2010

Amsterdam, March 3, 2010 Elsevier, the world-leading publisher of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, released a special issue of the journal Antiviral Research (www.sciencedirect.com/science/journal/01663542), marking the 25th anniversary of antiretroviral drug development.

In the late 1980s his group, then at the National Cancer Institute, played a key role in the discovery and development of the first generation of antiretroviral agents.

Physicians now have approximately 30 antiretroviral products, formulated either alone or in combination, to treat patients with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV-1), the pathogenic retrovirus which causes the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) and related conditions. Most are oral medicines, administered on convenient schedules. Several have been specially formulated as fixed-dose, generic-drug combinations for even greater utility in resource-poor nations.

In 2010 the journal Antiviral Research will celebrate its 30th anniversary by organizing an Antivirals Congress from 7-9 November 2010 in Amsterdam, the Netherlands (www.antivirals.elsevier.com). Floris de Hon, the Executive Publisher of the j
